For some reason for the last couple of days whenever i open my browser (Firefox) a dialogue box appears under the Google search bar detailing all my search history. What is the reason for this and how can i get rid of it?

Have you the latest Firefox....Firefox 57? If not... which one are you using?


EDIT: Try these settings....especially the Clear history when Firefox closes...suggest blocking the install of third party cookies, too.

I'm using Firefox 57. Did what you suggested buddy215 on earlier post (pre edit) and at the time lost my login to email accounts. Re enabled as before and now the problem has disappeared and back to normal.
